Nice ride. My friend has a 70 340 6 PAK. Same color as your sons. Sub Lime Green. You can see him coming a mile away 8).
So is your sons a true 440 6 PAK?

no, it's a regular challenger, we were going to put a 6 pack on it, but he over spent on the wheels and tires, and the aluminum rear window louver, so we went for the affordable edelbrock duel 4bbl's.. but he eventually wants to go with the 6 pack and swap out the auto for a manual, the rear end was swapped already.. interior is pretty much mint.. we also added frame connectors...

here's a shot of the front, I reluctantly saved the hood, it blew off when the pins weren't attched, so it took alot of fiberglass work to get it back together.. the paint line was standox
Nice work, looks great. I hope he is taking care of it.
It always make be cringe when I see someone spraying paint outside of a downdraft spray booth while using a cartridge mask. Your health is the most important thing in the world, protect it at all costs. Today's chemicals are much more dangerous than paint products were 20 or 30 years ago.
